Kitetracker is the winner of the People's Choice Swiss App Award 2013!!! unhooked Labs and approppo.ch thank all users and voters that help us to succeed!
This App allows you not only to check the position of other riders worldwide with their details like speed, average speed, rate of climb, total ascent and descent, altitude, distance, etc. but also to log your own session and compare them live with everyone else. With just a push of one single button everything is uploaded to Kitetracker.com.
The Kitetracker App has been designed for kite-, wind- and flying sports but can just as well be used for any other outdoor sports.
The very unique Live-Tracking functionality allows every 5 seconds an up to 1 meter accurate tracking of the app user with speed, altitude, distance, ascent /descent rate and much more! Follow your friends on the App or website www.kitetracker.com. You can see live what lines your friends are creating in the snow, how high they have climbed into the sky or how quickly they are gunning the new trail with their bike. The possibilities are endless.
You can also add to your sessions geolocation based photos or once you finished your session share it via Facebook for the world to see. Already uploaded sessions with their data and photos can be accessed from within the App. All uploaded sessions will be added to a global high score list with which you can measure yourself to users worldwide.

Note: The use of GPS tracking with the LiveTracking feature requires an Internet connection (at least EDGE), the data volumes are very low however the iPhone battery will be strained. Tip: Always ensure that all background apps are closed for maximum battery life! (Double click the large Button, then close all opened Apps).
Important: Your battery should always be fully charged before a session. Keep your iPhone as close to your body as possible. The colder a battery gets the less power it has!
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
